Happy Groundhog Day to you! >> [APPLAUSE] >> And it is Groundhog Day, not Groundhogs cuz it's only one hog we're talking about. >> [LAUGH] >> You know how the Groundhog Day thing works, right? So if the groundhog sees its shadow, you don't have to pay your taxes. >> [APPLAUSE] >> Yeah. No? That is not true, Mary? >> That is not true. >> I've gotta get a new accountant. Darn it. Groundhog Day is a tradition that goes back to the 1800s. I don't know who started it but I'm pretty sure they were drunk. >> [LAUGH] >> So there are traditions in other countries that have strange, I don't know what they're doing but there's something in France, and it's called St. Catharine's Day. And here's what happens. If you're a woman over 25 and you're not married, then you're supposed to walk around all day long in a yellow and a green hat on your head. Like that. >> [LAUGH] >> That way people know you're single and desperate. >> [LAUGH] >> Thanks, Catherine. Or, if you're 25 and single and not looking for a husband, it's a great opportunity to find other single girls. That's how my mind works. >> [LAUGH] >> That's what I'm, you know. Another unusual celebration, there's a village in Spain that has a yearly festival called el colacho. [MUSIC] So for el colacho- [MUSIC] Parents with newborn babies place them on pillows in the street and then men dressed as the devil jump over them, and it looks like this. >> [LAUGH] >> They have to jump over the babies to get the devil out of them. >> [LAUGH] >> Now I'm no expert on parenting, and- >> [LAUGH] >> Clearly neither is anyone in Spain. >> [LAUGH] >> But that's not how you get a baby to stop crying. That is- >> [LAUGH] >> Here's another photo of El Colacho. [MUSIC] >> [LAUGH] >> That's what they do. That's what they're doing. Now, the poor woman in the yellow hat found a husband, had a baby, moved to Spain, and now there's a devil jumping over the baby. >> [LAUGH] >> Finally, here's what happens in one town in Japan. Every year on April 6th, they do something called Connemara Matsuri. It's a festival to celebrate male fertility. Here's one of their parades. I can't- >> [LAUGH] >> I can't really show you what happens there. >> [LAUGH] >> Hey, listen, if the parade lasts more than four hours, consult a doctor. >> [LAUGH] >> I don't even wanna know what happens if it sees its shadow. I don't, I don't wanna. >> [LAUGH] >> [LAUGH] Boy. Here's a photo of some of the people at the festival enjoying lollipops. >> [LAUGH] >> You know who should go to that festival? Those single women wearing the yellow and green hats. >> [LAUGH] >> Take that down, I'm tired, okay. So what have we learned? Well, I've learned I'm not going to Japan on April 6th, that's what I've learned. >> [LAUGH] >> But here's a tradition that I will continue and that is dancing.
